A songwriter and a natural storyteller, Rondi Charleston, has attracted the accolades of a group of noteworthy jazz music critics. This jazz music vocalist is also an Emmy and Peabody-winning investigative journalist who worked alongside Diane Sawyer at TV’s PrimeTime Live. Ms. Charleston experienced a landscape of opportunity to fine-tune her storytelling skills to ready for her creations as a songwriter and jazz music vocalist and debut on the New York jazz scene. Her new jazz CD release, Who Knows Where the Time Goes is the product of blending her diverse careers in music, notably jazz music, and media. It is this collection of songs that form the centerpiece of her upcoming New York jazz show at Joe’s Pub. Her repertoire of songs embody honest words, skillful writing, and intelligent music - and her style assimilates the best of the Great American Songbook and the simplicity of a Top 40 pop tune.

While the New York jazz arena is home base, jazz vocalist and songwriter Charleston is a Chicago native. Her luminous sound, her lithe and flexible rhythmic sense, and her rich timbral quality are immediately recognizable, and characterize her performance on the new jazz CD. Her artistic consistency is apparent whether confessing the longings of “Please Send Me Someone to Love” or demonstrating her power on originals, “Dance of Time,” the remarkable tale of “Land of Galilee”, or reflections on the heart-wrenching ancestral journey in “Your Spirit Lingers.”

Downbeat Magazine wrote: “A rare artist for whom a song’s meaning is as important as its melody.”

Jazz Inside Magazine stated about Ms. Charleston: “ The world of jazz has embraced her with open arms.”
